Sonata in three parts

13 March 2008

Transcript from Men in Trees:

Love has a funny way of coming around again. It’s kind of like a sonata, but…

What do you mean?

Oh, every sonata has three movements, and the first one, the melody, is new… often lively. But the second part, the part you’re hearing right now, things can get a little dark and murky, and you can’t always hear the theme. But the third part always comes back to the beginning. Things have a way of working themselves out.

I fervently wish this is true, and that the second part will be over not so long from now. It is hard to see any sign of flickering light when you are lost, deep in a cave somewhere unknown, the uncharted territory.
